Ayahs of the Day:
Perhaps God may establish friendship between you and those of them you regard as enemies: and God is able; and God is most forgiving, most merciful. [60: 7]

Hadith of the Day:
Procrastination in repaying debt by a wealthy person is oppression. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
With both eyes, see the beginning and the end!
Be not one eyed, like the accursed Iblis!
Close your Iblis-like eye for a moment.
After all how long will you gaze upon form?
How long? How long? [Mawlana Rumi]

Guidance of the Day:
You must, O my brother, be mindful of God in all your movements and times of stillness, at every moment, with every blink of the eye, with every thought, wish or any other state. Feel His nearness to you! Know that He looks and is Aware of you, that nothing that you conceal is hidden from Him. He is with you wherever you are, with His knowledge, awareness and power. If you are righteous, He will guide, assist and protect you.

Have modesty before your Lord as you should; make sure that He never sees you in a situation which He has forbidden you, and never misses you where He has commanded you to be; worship Him as if you saw Him, for even if you do not see Him, He sees you. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Maturity is humility. A mature person is able to say, "I was wrong." And when he is proved right, he does not have to say, "I told you so." Maturity means dependability, integrity, keeping one's word. Maturity is the ability to live in peace with things we cannot change.
